Elissa’s Matcha Magic

Matcha is the finely ground powder of green tea leaves and it packs a serious punch when it comes to antioxidants. One cup of matcha green is equivalent to approx. 10 cups of basic green tea and I don’t do basic! The polyphenol antioxidant found in green tea that is responsible for nearly all the health benefits is refered to as EGCG and it has been researched for the following benefits:

  1. Reduce the risk of cancer
  2. Aids in Weight loss
  3. Supports Immunity
  4. Improves Insulin Sensitivity
  5. Prevents liver damage & destroys free radicals in people with fatty liver disease
  6. Helps you relax
  7. Aiding in the prevention of Alzheimer’s

Skip the green tea and go for 2 tsp. of matcha, and remember, it’s always best to make your own at home to avoid inferior and commercially made products. I make this Matcha Magic drink and keep it cool in the fridge for when I need a matcha boost. 

Ingredients:

1-2 tsp. high quality organic Matcha powder (I recommend DoMatcha or Kenko brands)

10 oz. filtered water

1-2 inches fresh ginger, juiced (or use a high quality ginger powder, like this one)

2 tsp. Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar 

juice of one fresh lemon 

cup ice

4-5 drops organic stevia (I recommend Omica or Body Ecology Stevia)

Shaker or bamboo whisk (optional)

Directions:

Add ingredients into a shaker, shake well, pour over ice.  If no shaker, whisk matcha into filtered water, add ginger, lemon, and apple cider vinegar, stir vigorously and pour over ice.  Sweeten with a couple drops of organic stevia.

Matcha will naturally separateover time, if that happens simple stir to re-blend.
